Things That Happened, Things To Do—Week of April 5
Each Monday (yes, this week, it’s Tuesday), the editors at Dispatches offer a recap of things that happened over the weekend and a look ahead at what’s going on this week on campus. We hope to point you toward links that you may not have seen, alert you to events that you won’t want to miss, and call your attention to items that captured ours. Enjoy.
- Denise Hofmann ’11 is studying abroad in Hangzhou, China, this semester, and she recently wrote about Google’s decision to leave the country in her blog “My Quarter Note Muse.”
- Why is it important to fill out the national census form? (You did fill yours out, didn’t you?) Poly sci professor Matthew Dickinson explains.
- The good folks in LIS (Library Information Services) have created a new online course catalog. It’s pretty nifty, we think.
- Musician Ezra Axelrod ’08 returns to town for a Saturday evening performance in Mead Chapel. Sponsored by the Middlebury Open Queer Alliance, Axelrod’s performance will explore themes of lust, love, conflict, and masculine/gay identity through original songs.
- Also this week, the Middlebury College Musical Players will be performing the classic Broadway musical West Side Story. The curtain rises for performances in the McCullough Social Space on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. Tickets can be purchased in advance.
